That... Doesn't Go There: Here Are The Most Common Sex Related Injuries

Call the doctor.

When it comes to sex related injuries, you can only begin to imagine what that person was doing or thinking at the time.


Thanks to the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) we now have a better look at the compromising situations people get themselves into.

They compiled data from 450 cases over the past six years, according to VICE, and broke them down — charts and all — by type of injury, items involved, body parts affected, and the month in which the injury happened.

The most common injury is caused by a foreign body. Contusions and burns (burns?!?) are not far behind.

The next chart breaks down the apparatuses that make up the majority of these foreign bodies.

As strange as it may seem, sex related injuries happen a lot more than you think.

Dr. Robert Glatter, of Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City told VICE, "It's not uncommon that we see this... We see a ton of these."

The next chart breaks down where injuries occur the most. As you can imagine, the lower area of people's bodies are most commonly afflicted.

The last chart breaks down which month has the highest rate of injury.

While you may think the months around the holidays and Valentine's Day would be at the top, it's actually... July. Go figure.

If you do manage to get yourself into one of these situations, swallow the embarrassment and seek medical attention.

Dr. Robert Glatter was quick to add: "We always have respect and privacy and never pass any judgement."

Amen to that.
